Music In Real Life presents: The Mixtape Gift Guide

Want to show someone how much you care, but don’t quite know how to say it? Create a mixtape for them, the universal symbol that says “hey, I really like you, hopefully these tunes will show it”. Figure out the person you’re going to give this magical mixtape to and scroll down to find our top recommendations. Of course, nothing is better than putting a personal spin on these things, so add an extra track that you guys have jammed to together, or perhaps a song you can’t stop referencing during your times together. Either way, they’re bound to enjoy.

FOR THE GIRLFRIEND:

Whether they classify themselves as realists or romantics, none of that matters here because music is universal to all ideals. Create something she can wake up to, something she can cry to, but more importantly, something she can find you in when she feels lonely:

  1. Avalanche - WALK THE MOON
  2. Luv, Hold Me Down - Drowners
  3. Let Your Heart Hold Fast - Fort Atlantic
  4. Never Stop - SafetySuit
  5. Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls
  6. You Are Mine - MuteMath
  7. The Girl - City And Colour
  8. Bloom - The Paper Kites
  9. The Modern Leper (Cutting Room Sessions) - Frank Turner
  10. Medicine - The 1975

FOR THE BOYFRIEND:

Known for being notoriously hard to shop for during gift-giving times, boys can sometimes be a little bit harder to analyze. Scientists have yet to discover what they exactly do want, but that doesn’t matter here. Create a mixtape that blows his mind, that makes him believe he doesn’t really need that new Call of Duty game, and that surprises him with how awesome your music taste is:

  1. Fineshrine - Purity Ring
  2. Every Other Freckle - alt-J
  3. To Be Alone - Hozier
  4. You and Me - You+Me  
  5. She’s Got You High - Mumm-Ra
  6. Sweet Disposition - The Temper Trap
  7. I Wanna Be Yours - Arctic Monkeys
  8. Rainy Zurich - The Fray
  9. What I Needed - Erin McCarley
  10. The Way I Am - Ingrid Michaelson

FOR THE BEST FRIEND:

Remember when you pulled that all-nighter which will go down in history as the time you ate every bad kind of food all at once? Remember when you laughed so hard you could feel your non-existent abs starting to bulge out of your body? Remember the time you felt like complete shit and they were the first person you called? Create a mixtape that’s just as completely wonderful as they are and a mixtape that tells not only all of your adventures together, but how much you appreciate them on a daily basis:

  1. Oath - Cher Lloyd feat. Becky G
  2. I Feel Like Dancin’ - All Time Low
  3. Best Day of My Life - American Authors
  4. Kids In The Street - All-American Rejects
  5. With A Little Help From My Friends - The Maine feat. Lydia and Arkells
  6. Laughter Lines - Bastille
  7. Agape - Bear’s Den
  8. Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) - Beyonce
  9. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper
  10. Breathe (2 AM) - Anna Nalick

FOR THE PARENT/GUARDIAN:

If you’re running out of present ideas for your parents (no, your dad doesn’t need another tie and your mom is probably better off without another bath set), a personalized gift that they’re sure to love is a mixtape. What kind of weird, lame music did they love to listen to back in the day? Find out the answer to that question and you have a mixtape they’ll constantly leave in their old cassette player or “CD-ROM DiscMan”. Here are suggestions of some of the great hits of the “olden days”, and some songs that will tug at their heart strings:

  1. China Grove - The Doobie Brothers
  2. Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
  3. American Woman - The Guess Who
  4. Born On the Bayou - Creedance Clearwater Revival
  5. The Best Day - Taylor Swift
  6. Dancing Queen - ABBA
  7. Green Eyed Lady - Sugarloaf
  8. Hazy Shade of Winter - The Bangles
  9. Come on Eileen - Dexy’s Midnight Runners
  10. Hotel California - The Eagles

FOR WHEN THE RELATIONSHIP GETS COMPLICATED TO DEFINE:

He (she) loves me, he (she) loves me not. If you’re still picking the petals off of flowers and you don’t know where you stand with someone, giving them a mixtape might be the perfect, yet subtle way of expressing your feelings. Pretty much any love/breakup song could fit on this one, but these are a few of our favourites. 

  1. The Only Way Out - Bush
  2. I Want to Belong to You - Katie Herzig
  3. Kathleen - Catfish and the Bottlemen
  4. I Will Posses Your Heart - Death Cab for Cutie
  5. 11:11 - Arkells
  6. If I Could Change Your Mind - Haim
  7. Closer Than This - St. Lucia
  8. Fallingforyou - The 1975
  9. Wonderful Unknown (feat. Greg Laswell) - Ingrid Michaelson 
  10. We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow - Soko

FOR THE PERSON WHO KNOWS MUSIC SO WELL YOU FEEL INTIMIDATED GIVING THEM YOUR OWN:

No matter what anyone says about country music, or the songs on the radio, or liking a band just because they’re “cool”, your music taste is awesome because it’s yours. However, if you feel a little self-conscious giving someone who loves music as much as you do a mixtape, here are our suggestions that we hope will blow them away. 

  1. You’ll Never Know - The Maine
  2. Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair - Arctic Monkeys
  3. Milk - The 1975
  4. Danny, Dakota, & the Wishing Well - A Silent Film
  5. Your New Beloved - Lovelife
  6. Make Me A Bird - Elektrik People
  7. Chelsea Dagger - The Fratellis
  8. Free (feat. Emeli Sandé) - Rudimental
  9. Ghost - Halsey
  10. Work Song - Hozier

FOR THE DOUCHEBAG/B*TCH THAT BROKE YOUR HEART:

While the title might be a little vulgar, we know that when someone breaks your heart, there’s no room for politeness or gentleness. You may not be as confident (or as cheesy) as some music videos/movies where you actually give this mixtape to your ex to show them that you’ve moved on, but think of this one as a gift to yourself. Sometimes channeling your anger or sadness into a beautiful creation can be therapeutic, so go ahead and waste a blank CD on this one. 

  1. According to You - Orianthi
  2. Drown - Front Porch Step
  3. My Song 5 - Haim
  4. Over It - Katharine McPhee
  5. Black Roses - Clare Bowen
  6. #Icanteven (feat. French Montana) - The Neighbourhood
  7. Walk Over Me - The All-American Rejects
  8. You - The 1975
  9. Satan - The Composure
  10. Over You (feat. A Great Big World) - Ingrid Michaelson

FOR THE PERSON WHO NEEDS CHEERING UP:

If someone you know is going through a rough patch, a mixtape of epic, inspirational songs might make life a little more bearable. As with the other mixtapes, this gift is perfect  is a great solution to not knowing how to put your feelings into words. Luckily, artists have already completed that task for you. It would make this mixtape even more meaningful and effective if you were to add some personal favourites. 

  1. You Won’t Feel a Thing - The Script
  2. Pocketful of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield
  3. Little Wonders - Rob Thomas
  4. Don’t Give Up On “Us” - The Maine
  5. Keep Your Eyes Open - NEEDTOBREATHE
  6. Parade - Matchbox Twenty
  7. Lifeline - Mat Kearney
  8. Face Up - Lights
  9. Lonesome Dreams - Lord Huron
  10. Suddenly I See - KT Tunstall

anonymous asked:

*gently crashes through your wall* I'm doing a thing and I need Jasico songs so what are songs you relate to Jasico?

They’ve kind of reached that point where, uh… every song reminds me of them (sob) but here are the top picks for me:

Parachute by Cheryl Cole (but I prefer Ingrid Michaelson’s version) (Don’t believe the things you tell yourself so late night; You are your own worst enemy, you’ll never win the fight

Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips (basically every single line in this song is p e r f e c t but the opening line is really the best summation of their relationship) (When life leaves you high and dry; I’ll be at your door tonight; If you need help, if you need help)

Home by Phillip Phillips (Don’t pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear;
The trouble it might drag you down; You get lost, you can always be found)

Are We There Yet by Ingrid Michaelson (They say you’re really not somebody till somebody else loves you; Well I am waiting to make somebody somebody soon)

Feel Again by OneRepublic (I reached out trying to love but I feel nothing; Yeah, my heart is numb; But with you I feel again)

Night Terror by Laura Marling (tHANKS TINYBRO I REALLY NEEDED THAT) (I woke up and he was screaming; I’d left him dreaming; I roll over and shake him tightly, and whisper “If they want you, then they’re gonna have to fight me,”)

Halo by Beyonce (Hit me like a ray of sun; Burning through my darkest night; You’re the only one that I want; Think I’m addicted to your light)

Sun Hands by Local Natives (I’ll endure the night; For the promise of light; I want to lift my hands towards the sun; Show me warmth; Baby, won’t you show me warmth again?)

You Found Me by The Fray (lost and insecure, you found me; losing her, the only one who’s ever known who I am)

Say When by The Fray (Come across you lost and broken; You’re coming to but you’re slow in waking;; Say when, and my own two hands will comfort you, tonight, tonight)

Stray Italian Greyhound by Vienna Teng (But you had to come along didn’t you; Break down the doors, throw open windows; Oh if you knew just what a fool you have made me)

Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (You have suffered enough; And warred with yourself; It’s time that you won)

After the Storm by Mumford & Sons (And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears; And love will not break your heart and dismiss your fears)

Friend Please by Twenty One Pilots (Petrified of who you are and who you have become; You will hide from everyone, denying you need someone)

anonymous asked:

ally, can you pick say 10 songs that you have strong memories of and tell us their story?

I would LOVE to. What a great question.

  • Jack and Diane by John Cougar Mellancamp - This song reminds me of long drives around Australia in the old kombi with my dad. He loved this song, as well as The Eagles and Roy Orbison (I think they were just the only tapes he had) and will always be the soundtrack for that time.
  • Fire and Rain by James Taylor - It reminds me of someone in my life who passed away, but also just any real hardship and the process of coming through it.
  • Everything by Michael Buble - Back maybe 7 years ago or so a friend and I used to love singing this song. There’s that one line that is just my favourite and makes me smile so hard. Then I introduced @oats-and-yoga to it during our roadtrip and share the memory with her now too.
  • Landslide by Fleetwood Mac - In 2014 I was climbing a literal mountain in Switzerland with some of my close friends, and played this song as we got close to the top. The song itself also reminds me of the Glee cover and is incredibly sad, but this was a beautiful and special moment.
  • Up On The Roof by James Taylor - Right after mum had surprised me with a James Taylor tribute show, we were driving home and she asked if I could somehow play some songs through the car. This was the first I put on, and I remember just being on cloud nine as we belted this out together after such a beautiful and moving experience.
  • Going To Carolina by James Taylor - I’ve posted the story of this song on here before, but now it has the added meaning of reminding me of One Tree Hill and I want to visit North Carolina properly for these two things that bring me so much joy. (James and OTH)
  • Lady Madonna - I remember this one so specifically. On a school camp, my “boyfriend” at the time played it on the piano and a bunch of us sang along and that group of friends I had were what reignited my Beatles love. One of the teachers’ was one of the boys’ dads and he totally pushed it along (both our awkward relationship and my music taste)
  • Shower The People by James Taylor - When I was studying for Year 12 exams I went away to a little house down on the coast without wifi or a TV. I listened to James basically non stop during those days and this one was a favourite. I really love the lyrics of the chorus.
  • Sugar Sugar by the Archies - I found it initially from the Now and Then soundtrack and it brings me back to that scene of them riding their bikes through town with a radio on the front of the handles. It also reminds me of such a specific time of high school, the people I was friends with, the boys I kissed and the person I was becoming. It’s a great song.
  • Happy Little Hippie by Cody Simpson - I remember hearing this for the first time in LA. Sjana and I were driving from Malibu back to our hotel and I think she’d been at the Simpson’s house the night before. I hadn’t heard the album yet and when this song came on we were going along the PCH and I felt so free and it’s just such a jam.
  • Without You by Ingrid Michaelson - Greys. Always.

I WANT EVERYONE READING THIS TO ANSWER THE SAME QUESTION AND MAKE A POST LIKE THIS. Tell me songs that remind you of certain moments from your life. Tag me so I can read it and listen to them :)
